“Friendly and helpful!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 July 2013

The hotel is situated conveniently on the road that takes you into the city when you arrive from Florence (hence the street's name Via Fiorentina;)). When I arrived, I was positively took note that it was very well maintained, clean inside and outside. As it was the time of the Palio, I was glad that I could leave the car at the hotel and take a bus into town from a close-by bus stop and even if I returned late and there were no busses anymore, it was just a 30 minute walk from the Piazza del Campo and thankfully Siena is safe to do that. But what I'd like to underline was the friendliness of the staff. I felt welcome from the moment of arrival, got lots of tips around the Palio, what to, where to go and from maid to receptionist there seemed to be a good spirit.

This is a small, comfortable boutique style hotel with low key, tasteful decor in the rooms and public areas. Very helpful multilingual staff. Generous breakfast buffet. Adjacent restaurant (separately owned) very good. Really good accommodation.

This hotel was just perfect for us. A combination of well-designed rooms, friendly and helpful staff, free parking and wi-fi, and good location can not be beaten easily. It's not quite at the old city center, but if you have a car, than this is just perfect as it's only a few minute drive away. The bed is great, the breakfast also and you can sit at some kind of a covered outside terrace, which is very pleasant. The hotel seems well-built and of newer date (or just well-maintained). No elevator, though, which could be inconvenient for some older guests. But I'm sure the hotel staff would help to carry the luggage if needed. All in all, very recommended.

Great B&B, with nice rooms and great breakfast in a cute dining space. The lady at the reception was very helpful and kind. Free parking as well.
The only disanvantage for me is that the B&b isn't in the amazing historic centre of the city.

We literally put a pin in the page - laptop speaking - to happen on this little gem. Bright, shiny and neat. Lovely little place,. The reception staff were very welcoming and spoke excellent English. When I enquired about getting to Siena she produced a map - inidcated where we were - gave me the bus numbers and where they stopped to get into and out of Siena. If you do decide to walk it is a bit of a stretch - 20 minutes to the old town at a steady fast pace but flat and a pleasant walk if weather good. Rooms neat and tidy - lovely bathrooms. The only downside I think is that the beds in a twin room at 2ft 6in beds - not good for larger people!! The breakfast was absolutely lovely and a wide choice, Splendid stay!

We arrived by train and decided to walk to this hotel from the train station as our map indicated that it was only around 1km away...not a very good idea as our trip was all up hill. The hotel was clean and the breakfast was very good. If you have a car, I can see the location of this hotel being terrific, but since we did not have a car I found it to be too far away from the historic center of Siena. There was 1 restaurant close by. I like to be able to leave my hotel at night and walk around, but there really was nothing to see around this hotel.

We chose this hotel on looks alone as we drove past. Not that there weren't other hotels that appeared interesting but this seemed an attractive enough place with reasonably secure parking within reasonable distance of the town centre. The rooms and service were thankfully as we expected from the outside appearance.

The reception is clean and welcoming and our receptionist was very pleasant and helpful. Our room was clean, roomy, had a typically Italian-hard-but-comfortable-enough bed and all conventional amenities. As a bonus we had a beautiful, slightly restricted view of Tuscan hills.

We asked about getting into the town centre and were advised that it is a longish walk or there is a reasonably frequent bus service with a stop not far from the hotel. We opted for the bus only to find after we'd been waiting for twenty or more minutes that a one-day strike had been called! We walked the rest of the way and were relieved to see the old town walls after about twenty minutes only to find that there was another twenty minute plus walk to where all the restaurants and main tourist attractions were! It was all very interesting once we got there and we had a great afternoon and evening but needless to say we took a taxi home.

Apart from that we had a pleasant and comfortable stay. The room is what can be expected for the price and the included breakfast was acceptable. We'd stay there again.
